What is it about?

Deaf people have not had access to barrier-free sex education until now. Therefore, their idea of sexuality is often distorted. There is also a lack of knowledge about contraception. First of all, we built a barrier-free website. This offers knowledge with over 200 videos in sign language. In addition to basic topics, it also covers topics such as gender identity, sexting, violence and much more. Now the expansion of the site in easy language is planned. This way, people with learning difficulties can also get information and exercise their right to equal and self-confident sexuality.
